The Bracke P11.a makes it possible to conduct the full scope of regeneration work from scarification to planting with a single machine. The P11.a provides regeneration of the highest quality and with the greatest possible consideration for environmental and ecological aspects. It is easy to use and is controlled directly from the cab. The operator can choose the planting bed for each individual plant.
Normally, the Bracke P11.a makes a mound of inverted humus, compacts it and sets the plants in the middle of the mound. Mounding is the preferred planting method for most soil types. It is even possible to vary the scarification by raking the ground with the head’s bucket, to make scarification patches, or to plant directly without scarification. All functions are easily controlled from the cab. Whatever the scarification method, the operator can make allowances for naturally regenerating plants and ecological conditions, as well as cultural aspects and relics.
The control system, is based on a PLC platform and communicates over a CAN bus. The head is fitted with sensors that send information to the control system about, for example, the planting tube’s position. Adjustment and reading of the planting depth, compaction and other variables is done over the display in the cab and all units in the control system can communicate over the CAN bus. The control system keeps track of the number of plants set in the ground, for both individual sites and in total, and the number of hours worked. The planting and mounding function are controlled effortlessly with two control buttons over the control system.
The Bracke P11.a delivers effective scarification and planting on all types of soil, from easily worked and fertile ground to stony fields covered in slash. The operator can choose the planting spot for each individual plant and even decide how the planting spots are formed.
